The National Training Agency is hosting a series of consultations during the week of February 14, 2022, as it seeks to develop a national TVET Policy for Grenada in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development, Religious Affairs, and Information.
The TVET policy aims to create a governing framework that includes all stakeholders, enhance human resource capacity, and respond to societal demands to empower individuals to earn and learn.
The policy is part of a larger vision to position Grenada for greater global competitiveness by improving the productivity of its labour market through the development of market-driven skills and by bolstering its TVET system.
Five priority lines of action have been proposed for the policy including:
Strengthening TVET governance
Access to and participation in TVET
Quality assurance in TVET
Financing for sustainable TVET
The TVET Policy is being developed by external consultant, Ms. Pauline Whiteman who is a TVET specialist. Financing is provided by the government of Grenada and UNESCO.
The consultation involves stakeholders across government, training institutions, private sector, faith-based and community groups and other associations and non-governmental organizations.
